|LOL!! This was me Saturday morning!|
I don’t know what’s going on with the scale but I put on half a pound last week. This is very frustrating and discouraging. I’m telling you, this week the scale better be extra nice to me! It’s a good thing I took measurements because that maybe the only thing that saves my sanity. I’ll take new measurements next Friday to see what kind of progress I’ve made over the past month. This plateau will end and I will see weight loss again, so I persevere. I press on toward the goal. I will fight for every last pound. J
I am so excited to report I had a HUGE breakthrough this past weekend. You all know I have a “free” day and it has been the one piece of my former self I haven’t been able to let go of. I was telling my mom yesterday that as long as I’ve been on this weight loss journey I have wanted to stay within boundaries on my “free” day, but I haven’t done it. Mentally and emotionally I couldn’t let go of the one day that allowed me to run to food; to over indulge. I know I can turn down the piece of chocolate cake on Wednesday because on Saturday I can eat the entire cake. Not good I know, but it’s what I’ve done for almost two years now. Well, this past Saturday I put a calorie limit on my day and I stayed within it!!! I did it. For the first time in 2 years I did it. This is a MAJOR victory for me. I didn’t completely undo everything I worked for the past week. I was able to have some treats without binging. It was so empowering and I believe it will be the key to teaching me how to eat certain food in moderation. The “free” day is what helped me in the beginning and it will be what sees me beyond my goal. What an amazing journey this is!!
